I don't follow how the gtk2 churn affects graphics/gdk-pixbuf, which seems to be only a gtk1 thing and as far as I know stable. If there isn't a good reason to link these issues, I would suggest not doing so. Or is it just about wanting to call the new gtk2+-based pixbuf code "gdk-pixbuf". To reduce confusion, I'd call is gdk2-pixbuf or gtk2+-pixbuf or something anyway. Is the continued presence of graphics/gdk-pixbuf causing any problems? > I see this as an incentive to get rid of the GTK1 version of the > package. I am assuming you aren't talking about doing this today before the freeze. (Deleting a random crufty package with no dependencies is one thing, but there's quite a bit of collateral damage to removing gdk-pixbug.) [list trimmed to things I know something about] > devel/guile-gtk > devel/guile16-gtk These two are fairly stable APIs to gtk from guile. guile16 is becoming less important, but there are reasons (e.g., guile-pgsql) to use it. > geography/gpsdrive package is old, now based on gtk2+. I queued myself a TODO to update it. Please don't delete, even if gdk-pixbuf goes (but mark broken). > graphics/gqview-gtk1 I am a gqview (well, geeqie) user and I doubt that gqview-gtk1 has any users. So this package is probably a candidate for removal on its own merits. In general, my view on package removal is: causes significant pain OR is so crufty that one can say in good conscient that no one in their right mind shoudl be using it, even if they have legacy code. gqview-gtk1 passes the too-crufty test, because everyone I know has moved to geeqie. guile-gtk does not quite, because the way to migrate is to guile-gnome (gtk2 and more, but not source-code compatible with guile-gtk) which is a bit too unstable of an upstream to depend on and thus reasonable people may choose to stay with guile-gtk.
